Austin Rivers shot 10-for-21 from the field for 27 points with four rebounds, six assists and five 3-pointers in 41 minutes on Monday against the Hawks.
Rivers was terrific in this one, rewarding those who added him after the CP3 injury. He took an awkward fall late in the second quarter, which looked like a terrible ankle sprain, and went to the locker room for the rest of the half. He came back right after halftime and it was as if nothing had happened. Rivers is a must-own commodity while CP3 is out and has standalone value thereafter, as the Clippers have an excellent standard league H2H playoff schedule.
